This is Elf Undómiel D, compatible with the Sun Java Plugin.
Elf is here to help you find touches and quarter-peal compositions
of half-lead spliced. It is an online composing engine - you
tell it which methods to use, and how long a touch you're looking for, and it does
the rest. Here's a summary of the features Elf provides:
On the downside, there are some things that Elf can't do.
It is designed for Major methods only; and finding peal lengths is too big a job
- Choose any number of Surprise, Delight or Treble-bob Major methods to splice.
- Select any number of parts and any number of leads in the part.
- Find touches with or without calls.
- High speed composing engine - capable of processing millions of leads per second.
- Composition results sorted by music and method balance.
- Runs off-line once the "Composer" page has downloaded - you don't need to stay connected.
- Sophisticated pruning options to speed up and target your search.
- No knowledge of composition or computers required!
